Sergio Rico evolves favorably within his state of gravity. This Wednesday, the Intensive Medicine team of the Virgen del Rocío University Hospital has completely removed the sedation of the PSG goalkeeper, admitted since May 28 in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Rico suffered a hemorrhage caused by a traumatic brain injury after falling from a horse in the pilgrimage of El Rocío.
Despite the good news, his condition remains serious, since the blows he suffered to his head were very strong and have caused significant injuries. Sergio Rico was in Seville celebrating the league championship he had achieved with PSG. The goalkeeper, 29, has been playing for the Parisian club since the summer of 2019, where he arrived from Sevilla, the club where he played and where he trained through all the lower categories until reaching the first team in 2014. He arrived on loan to PSG in 2019 and, subsequently, signed for the French club in 2020 in exchange for six million euros for Sevilla. He also played on loan at Fulham (18-19) and Mallorca (21-22, in the second round).

Throughout these two weeks, Rico has received numerous supports, both from his current club, Sevilla and former teammates. The goalkeeper continues to be admitted to the ICU, where he is being treated by a multidisciplinary team of specialists.
